The Junior Professor Solution - S8-E2

Character mistake: When Howard is asking Sheldon engineering questions, the first question is "How do you quantify the strength of materials?" Sheldon answers "Young's Modulus," and Howard admits that is correct. But it's not correct - Young's Modulus quantifies a material's elasticity, not strength. (00:17:10)

The Septum Deviation - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: In this episode Leonard has a snoring problem (a result of a deviated septum, which in all probability he was born with, plus Amy says Sheldon has always complained about Leonard's snoring, and Sheldon says after 5 or 6 years he's gotten use to Leonard's snoring), but in episode 14 of season 3 when Sheldon brings up snoring Penny says, "Leonard doesn't snore." And in episode 8 of season 6, Sheldon lists not snoring as one of Leonard's positive traits.

Show generally

Question: How come Raj has no problem speaking to his mother, but, when around other women, such as Penny, he immediately stops talking? Also, why does he have to whisper in someone's ear if he wants to ask Penny something?

Answer: Because Raj's selective mutism seems to be caused by women that Raj sees (on some sort of conscious or subconscious level) as a potential sexual partner. An attribute that wouldn't apply to either his sister or mother.
